When J.Dilla died, it wasnt like the punch in the face that occurred when others passed away for me. It was like taking slow-acting poison or something and I realized the tremendous loss we all suffered. I was aware of Dilla from the Tribe Days to his current stuff, but he was so low-key and humble that I didnt realize the breadth of work he put out.
Here are some of the videos that I have amassed for one reason or another. As always, I want your input and I will add them to the post as much as possible. When you talk about Black History, you have to mention Dilla. Also, peep AllHipHops appreciation of Dillas musical legacy. On to the videos!
Wont do J-Dilla and his brother John as the MC. (Dillas beautiful mother appears in this video along with Common, Will.I.Am (Black Eyed Peas), Black Thought (Roots), Frank N Dank, and Talib Kweli.)

DILLA LACED DE LA SOUL
Ill be damned to the gates of Hell if this song hasnt withstood the test of time and the stakes are still high as Heaven.
One thing about Dilla is that his discography was so extensive that you can never really get it all in a post like this. This here is an instrumental podcast of the mans unreleased work.
